Parenting Kids with ADHD

6-session group program focused on additional parenting strategies for ADHD

Parenting and Promoting Growth in Kids with ADHD

Parenting can be joyful and fulfilling, but it can also be challenging and stressful. Parenting a child with additional needs is even more challenging, and for that reason specialised strategies are often needed.

ADHD WA are offering carers a 6-session group intervention focused on additional parenting strategies for ADHD, for those caring for a child who has a formal diagnosis of ADHD and the child is aged 6-12 years old.

This will be a highly practical group with between-session practice tasks, that we hope will be of great benefit to those who attend.

The focus is on raising awareness of ADHD behaviours, increasing the chances of desired behaviour, responding to challenging and undesired behaviour, and using rewards and quality time along the way.

Fee Agreement

Registration and payment mean that I understand that I am expected to pay the course fee in advance of the start of the course, and I am not entitled to a refund for non-attendance. I further understand that receipts for the purpose of claiming Medicare rebates will be issued on a session by session basis, and will be not issued if for any missed sessions. I understand that it is the client’s responsibility to process Medicare claims. I also understand that due to Medicare requirements, if participants fall below 6 on any session, no participants in that session will be eligible for a Medicare rebate (for that particular session).
